Annual Giving continues to make a difference for every student and teacher. Our St. Albans community has shown tremendous resolve in the wake of COVID-19 and our boys are back at school, albeit via a distance learning model.
Students and teachers alike have demonstrated patience, resourcefulness, and kindness as their daily routines have been upended. The traditional classroom experience has transformed into a virtual one.
Many of you have reached out asking how to help the boys during this time--a touching gesture that showcases the strength of our community. The best way to make an immediate impact is to support Annual Giving.
Amidst our trying circumstances, the boys’ teachers and school administrators have risen to the occasion, building the infrastructure necessary to deploy distance learning; for example, many boys have received laptops and WiFi hotspots, classroom technology has been significantly upgraded to enhance the distance learning model for both students and teachers, and the School has been outfitted with many measures to promote social distancing once in-person classes resume.
Annual Giving at St. Albans formed years and years ago with one key objective: provide unrestricted funds to benefit the students and their teachers. The broad scope of Annual Giving allows the School to provide resources and financial support to the boys when unexpected expenses arise, often described as “emerging needs.” And since March, the School has been a drastic increase in these emerging needs.
On behalf of everyone at St. Albans, thank you for your generosity and thoughtful consideration. Our collective efforts will be the reason we emerge stronger.
